SeaWatch

For decades, the Sea of Cortez’s reefs and reef fisheries were declining at an alarming rate as fishermen using compressed air ravaged them. Then, 20 years ago, residents of a small fishing community took matters into their own hands and with community-wide commitment, stopped the fishing that was killing the reefs and reef fish populations by providing 24-hour citizen-driven vigilance and community commitment to stop killing any reef fish in their area.
